At the beginning of the year I set two goals for 2013 and both were related to health. Although I’m having a hard time believing the year is half over, it’s time to measure progress and adjust accordingly.
Weight Loss Goal
Second Quarter Goal: Lose 10 pounds by June 30th.
The original goal was to lose 40 pounds this year and 15 pounds the first quarter. I had lost 17 pounds at the end of the first quarter and made a specific goal to lose 10 pounds over the next three months.
At my last Weight Watchers weigh-in my total loss was 27.8 pounds which means I met my goal. 🙂
Second Quarter Goal: 250 minutes of exercise a week minimum by end of quarter.
In January I set a goal to exercise 4-5 times a week for 30 minutes minimum. Since I met that one by the end of the quarter the goal was revised.
I’m still taking two Pilates classes two mornings a week. My husband and I also walk 3-4 times a week with mileage from 3-8 miles each outing so we’re exceeding 250 minutes when I’m home.
I added that caveat because it’s hard to exercise when traveling (unless you’re at a health/fitness conference) but I’ve managed to get some exercise in each trip.
Third Quarter Goals
Weight Loss: Although I’m still losing consistently it’s slowed to a little more than 1/2 pound a week. Based on that number, my goal is to lose seven pounds by September 30th.
Exercise: This quarter I’m not going to change the goal. The Avonwalk for Breast Cancer is September 7-8th and I’ll continue to work on strength twice weekly and train for the walk 3-4 days.
Whatever your goals take the time to assess the current state and make adjustments. How are you doing with your 2013 goals?
